A+ Educational Centers teaches students realistic drawing and painting. Curriculum is varied to include teaching still-life, the figure, landscape, portraiture, cartooning, animation, clay sculpture and more. This high quality fine art program offers art instruction that goes far beyond cut and paste, and arts & crafts. It teaches a student how to "see" in a new way and offers basic understanding of how to draw and paint.
Realistic drawing and painting skills help strengthen confidence, which in turn lessens frustration. A+ Educational Centers drawing and painting instruction helps students avoid continual dissatisfaction with their artistic abilities, so that they will not eventually give up pursuing art as a viable interest. Drawing and painting are learned subjects, just like any other.
We take a very classical approach to teaching drawing and painting. What this means is that instruction coupled with practice, will bring about an independent and confident artist. This is not unlike the apprentice system used in the days of the Renaissance. Students worked for master painters for years before they ever became "masters" themselves.
After teaching thousands of students, our instructors and our teaching method has shown that we can teach any student (who has the desire to learn) to excel beyond their expectations. Anyone with a desire to learn and work at improving skills can draw and paint competently. The root of the word "talent" means "inclination of mind," thus students who want to learn need only bring their "interest," and we will supply inspiration and quality instruction. After months at A+ Educational Centers, students and their families are constantly amazed at their new abilities, and, that it is really fun to learn to draw and paint!
